If you're not happy with the texture of your plastisol prints, for example, you can heat press it to have a softer, smoother feel. (Just make sure you use a teflon sheet, or your ink will melt and smear!)

In the world of vinyl, there are also specialty prints available, such as 3D, flock, and neon-electric colors.
